Description - The Orchard Book of Stories from the Ballet by Geraldine McCaughrean

A beautiful new edition of a classic ballet story collection. Travel to the magical Land of Sweets across the Lemonade Ocean in The Nutcracker; be dazzled by the magical Firebird with her flame-bright feathers; and dance until the clock chimes midnight with Cinderella and her handsome prince. Master storyteller Geraldine McCaughrean retells these classic tales with poetry and magic, while renowned artist Angela Barrett's exquisite illustrations dance off the page.

"McCaughrean could rewrite the shipping forecast and make is sound riveting - she has a wonderful talent for drawing children straight into the story."
